New Bike: YT 2016 Range and Intense Prototype Bike

YT continues the success of their Capra and Tues, after they finally finished those bikes, with some improvements in many parts. On first appearance, YT Capra has been on of the most popular enduro bikes on the market, and seems that YT wants that predicate still go along with the Capra. Let's check the Capra line up, which is available in three version, the YT Capra CF Pro Race, YT Capra CF Pro, and YT Capra CF Comp. 
These bikes are the follow up of their previous aluminum Capra version that has been released last year and get huge attention also. And for the 2016, YT continues by releasing the carbon version with three models; the first two models, the Pro models will get better parts than the Comp, such as FOX suspension on both rear and front; FOX Factory Float 36 Fork and FOX Float X2. The bikes also get higher travel, 170 mm to 180 mm.
Another parts are high parts from Renthal bars, DT Swiss carbon wheelset and Mavic Crossmark XL Pro, SRAM Guide Brake, Raceface and E*13 cranks that paired with SRAM X01drivetrain. The Comp version will come in Rockshox Lyrik and Monarch Plus, Raceface cranks combined with SRAM X1 drivetrain, and also E*13 Wheelset. The Capra CF Pro Race will be priced at $5999, Capra CF Pro $5499, and the Comp $4699.

YT Tues also gets the attention, and for this year the manufacturer has been released the Tues, which is also available in three different models, same as the Capra; YT Tues CF Pro, YT Tues CF Comp, and YT Tues AL. The first two models will come in carbon frame and have better parts than the AL version; FOX 40 Factory combined with FOX Factory Float X2 for CF Pro. The CF Comp comes in Rockshox Boxxer Team and Rockshox Vivid R2C.

YT Tues AL seems is specially build for those who want to start downhill activity with a good bike. So, with lower price than the CF Pro and CF Comp, young riders still get attention with awesome YT Tues, which means race proven. The AL version comes in Rockshox Boxxer, combined with Rockshox Kage shock.

Different with YT which has released their new bikes, another big brand Intense chooses to show their prototype first than release the final version. The bike has been caught up ridden by Shaun Palmer. The bike simply very Intense look, and it can be said that this Intense Prototype is the combination between Intense Uzzi and M16.
It nice to see what the bike is, but it can be the new Intense Socom. For a while, Intense Socom was a popular bike among the riders, and it will be awesome to see the Socom on the trail again, with some uptades and improvements to make the bike better. (Intense pic: pinkbike.com)
